185. If the prayer ascends complete, with the precept of covering of TALIT AND Tefilin of the head and of the arm, it is said of them: "All the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of Hashem; and they shall be afraid of you" (Devarim 28:10). The phrase: "The name of Hashem" has already been explained as the Tefilin of the head. Whoever sees the name Yud Hei Vav Hei over the head in the prayer, which is THE NAME Adonai, shall immediately flee, as it is written: "A thousand shall fall at your side" (Tehilim 91:7).
189. The prayer of Shabbat is a charity given to the poor, as the sages of the Mishnah explained that the sun during Shabbat is charity given to the poor. Therefore, on all weekdays, a person should make himself a pauper at the gate of the King during the prayer of Amidah for the sake of the Shechinah, WHICH MEANS THAT HE SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN THE SORROW OF THE SHECHINAH, AS DID DAVID. He should cover himself with the proper vestments, NAMELY TALIT WITH TZITZIT, as a poor man stands at the gate to the temple OF THE KING, who is Adonai, because THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF 'ADONAI' adds up to that of 'temple' (Heb. heichal). This is WHY IT IS SAID, "Adonai, open my lips..." (Tehilim 51:17).
350. After three months, AFTER THE PREGNANCY WITH MOSES WAS OVER, he entered before Pharaoh. IN OTHER WORDS, THE DAUGHTER OF PHARAOH FOUND HIM AT THE RIVERBANK OF THE NILE AND BROUGHT HIM TO PHARAOH. The Holy One, blessed be He, took THIS LIGHT away from him until Moses stood at Mount Sinai to receive the Torah. Then he gave this light back to him and Moses used this LIGHT all his life. And the children of Yisrael were not able to approach him until he put a veil over his face, as it is written: "And they were afraid to come near him" (Shemot 34:30). He covered Himself WITH THIS LIGHT like a Talit, as it is written: "Who covers himself with light as with a garment..." (Tehilim 104:2).
